Summer 2023 Courses

ISCI 104- Chesapeake Horizons [C3L]

Instructor: Eric Fitzgerald

MTWTHF 4:00PM-9:00PM 

May 15-19, 2023

With more than 100,000 streams and rivers in its watershed, the Chesapeake Bay is the United States largest estuary. Every individual living in the 64,000 square mile watershed lives within a few minutes of water resources and has an impact on the quality of water, habitat and natural beauty of the national treasure. This course will examine the Chesapeake watershed though the lens of agriculturists, watermen, activists and citizens though hands-on adventures and personal interviews. The course includes off-campus tours and a three-day field experience on Tylerton, Smith Island.

The course will meet Monday, May 15-19, 2023. Limited to 15 students.

The first class will meet at 4-9 PM on Monday, May 15th, 2023.  Meet in EnGEO 3102. Will leave from there in JMU vans for a field trip that encompasses agricultural and environmental resources in our local area.

Tuesday, May 16th will also be 4-9 PM in our local area.

On Wednesday, the class will travel to Smith Island in the Chesapeake Bay and stay through Friday, May 19th, with hands on activities on the Island and the Bay. 

Will be returning to Harrisonburg by 6 PM on Friday. There will also be final reflections and project reports due after the return.
